Before we got the listing, it had been on the market for a year. The story of this listing is very relevant to what is going on in our current market.
I am standing in front of one of our newest sales; in fact, we just put the ‘Sold’ sign up today. I wanted to share the story of this listing with you because I think it is very relevant to what is going on in our current market for home sellers.
These sellers had put their home on the market with two different real estate agents. The home was on the market for an entire year between these two agents and neither one got results. These sellers went through the sales process twice, cleaned their home for showings, and no one came through the property. Instead, the agents kept telling them to just reduce the price.
I called these sellers and told them about our aggressive marketing strategy and the results that we’ve been getting. The home sellers took a leap of faith and gave me the opportunity to market this property.
It seems like everyone has a real estate license these days.
I put the home up for sale, communicated with the homeowners throughout the process, and gave them all the information they needed in order to make the best decisions for their situation. They were looking for a certain price and we were able to sell their home for an excellent price in less than 45 days.
I cannot tell you how relieved these home sellers were when they got the results that they wanted.
I wanted to tell you this story today because right now, we are in an environment where it seems like everyone has a real estate license. When you go to put your home on the market, you might think you are hiring a professional because they dress professionally and know how to talk the talk; in the end, though, you might not get the results or the communication that you want.
If you or someone you know is having a similar experience while trying to sell their home, give me a call. I would love to give you the information you need to sell your property. If you have any other questions about real estate, let me know. I would be happy to help you!
